Review Tour Overtime by Toni Aleo

Overtime by Toni Aleo

Series: Assassins Series #7

Genre: Contemporary Romance

Down and out with an injury keeping him away from the game, Assassins’ defenseman Jordie Thomas lives for the blades of his skates on the ice and the feeling of oblivion off it. With no choice but to heal, he’s forced away from the sport that runs through his veins. With everything at stake and darkness setting in, he quickly finds himself spiraling even further out of control. As his life begins to come crashing down around him and his contract with the Nashville Assassins on the line, he’s given an ultimatum. Ready or not, Jordie is forced to face his past, the fears that consume him, and the one woman he let walk away.

Kacey King had her professional dreams come true, yet her heart was battered and broken. With an Olympic gold medal around her neck, she’s ready to look forward to the future but without the one man she wanted in it. She’s missing the key pieces of her heart she left months ago with the only person who was capable of destroying it, causing her to falter in all her plans to move on.

>In the game of life, there are winners and losers, and neither Jordie nor Kacey want to be on the losing bench. If only Jordie could convince Kacey he’s a changed man and that he wants her right by his side as his MVP for the biggest and best parts of a life they build together. With emotions running high and the game on the line, can two proud people find happiness with each other, or will their hearts and souls be left in the cold? Will they see that sometimes having someone by your side who knows the good, bad, and broken is better than going it alone and losing everything through the back of the net? They are out of time on the game clock and fighting for the win of their lives.

But overtime was made for an Assassin like Jordie.

Overtime by Toni Aleo is the seventh book in the Assassins hockey series. All of the books in the series can be read as a stand alone. Overtime is actually the continuation of the “Wanting To Forget (Jordie’s Tale)” novella. In the novella, Jordie Thomas is trying to forget Kacey King, the woman who loved him, but he pushed away. Even though he loves her, he didn’t feel that he was good enough for her due to his addiction and other issues with his family growing up.

I will admit that after reading the novella, I wasn’t too happy with Jordie. But since I am a big fan of the series, I wanted to read Overtime to see how his story would develop. I was not disappointed. This story is real to life, with raw emotions that many people can relate to.

Jordie is finally made to face the fact that he needs to do something to treat his alcoholism. He goes to rehab and decides to work very hard to make himself a better person. He also wants to make himself a better man that he feels is worthy of Kacey’s love.

When he returns to Nashville, he wants to work on repairing his relationship with Kacey. Being so upset from what happened, Kacey is not sure that she can put the past behind her and give Jordie a chance. She still loves him, but is very cautious about being hurt again. Jordie does all he can to prove to her that he is changed and is the man who will be there for her.

I love how in this story you feel the emotions that the characters are going through. You can relate to the issues that hurt them and laugh when things happen that are really funny.  It’s also great to see the other characters from past books interact with these main characters. The scenes when they are talking about posts on Facebook are really funny.

Like the other books I have read in the series, I loved this book and I am looking forward to reading the next story.
